Call 970-879-4466 for more information.

Time-sensitive volunteer opportunities

Ongoing volunteer opportunities

  • Advocates of Routt County is recruiting victim advocates to provide on-call services for the 24-hour crisis line. Training is provided. Background check and confidentiality agreement are required. Contact Marnie at or 970-879-2034.
  • Routt County Council on Aging is looking for a meal delivery person. The meal deliveries have grown so much that they are in need of two drivers on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for Steamboat Springs. Hours start around 11:30 a.m., and the route takes about an hour. Anyone interested can stop by the Steamboat Community Center on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and talk with a Council on Aging staff member and fill out an application.
  • Community Agriculture Alliance is looking for volunteers. Someone is currently needed on Fridays; however, starting in late March, help will be needed Monday through Friday afternoons. There is a relatively easy computer program to learn, so some training involved.
  • Junior Achievement needs volunteers to work directly in the classroom once a week. Training, curriculum and support will be provided beginning in August. Contact Michelle at 303-618-6269 or to get involved.
